IMPORTANT NOTE

Vacation time with friends and family is an important part of a healthy life.
This is why I'll be out of the country with my lovely wife and some good friends between February 18th and 26th.


All orders placed after 7PM on February 17 will be shipped on February 27. Thank you for your understanding. Sorry for this interruption.

Bob (from Ontario) Gets the Audi R18 e-tron quattro

Will YOU be the one getting this wonderful prize at the end of February?

As a way to reward its most loyal customers, Slot Car Corner Canada already has its SCCC Points Rewards program. For the start of 2017, I decided to do something more and the customer who has spent the most money at SCC Canada in January will soon receive this wonderful Slot.It Special Limited Edition Audi R18 e-tron that won Le Mans in 2013.

(For privacy reasons, I'm not publishing the full names of involved customers. They will recognize themselves.)

The lucky winner is Bob, who has been one of SCC Canada's most loyal customers for a long time. Even though I've never met Bob in person, I consider him as a friend, like so many other customers all across the country. With 12 orders and a total of $1292 spent in January, he barely won the car over Ken (from Manitoba) who spent $1266 spread over 4 orders (yes, that's only a $26 difference!). Bob and Ken both placed an order on the evening of January 31st, hours before the deadline. I didn't think this would play out like this but it was like watching a hockey game decided in the last seconds of the third period. Exciting stuff !

A few other customers spent around $700 in January and were not that far for a while.

For all of you who were hoping to get this car, it's not over yet. All scores went back to zero on February 1st and everyone has a chance to win again. Order totals that high for a month are a rare occurrence, so everyone is still in the game. Start planning your orders for the weeks to come. The winner will be announced in the next newsletter.

Purolator - Replaced by Dicom

Many of you know that Purolator shipping is a great way to get your order fast, wherever you are in Canada. For packages, the rates are almost identical as what Canada Post offers. This is made possible by the fact that I'm using the contract signed with Purolator by my full-time employer to ship those packages, offering you an express shipping option for a very reasonable price.

But that also means that when my employer signs a new contract, I also have to switch. In this context, I'm announcing that starting March 1st, Dicom Express will become the new courier for Slot Car Corner Canada. There will certainly be some hiccups at the start but I'm confident Dicom Express will do a good job of delivering your orders to your door.



The good news that comes with this change is that the cost of shipping will now be the same for everyone. With Purolator, it's currently $10 for Ontario and Québec but $14 for other provinces. Starting March 1st, all Dicom orders will be shipped in all provinces for only $10. Just make sure to use a shipping address where someone can be there during the day for the delivery person.

Of course, Canada Post shipping will still be available for all orders, if you prefer.

Understanding Paul Gage Tires

Despite the logic numbering scheme for Paul Gage Tires, it's still not easy for beginners (and even experienced racers!) to know how to choose the right tire by its model number.

As resellers for Paul Gage tires, we regularly have questions on the fit for Paul Gage tires. That's why I have created a new chart that will hopefully be useful for many of you. It's designed to be simple and graphic. Along with our exclusive Tire Selector and the occasional help from Paul Gage himself, everyone should be able to find the perfect Paul Gage tires for the car or the wheel you want.

Click on the image below to download the PDF version. Print it and keep it near your slot car stuff. This way, you'll always be ready to order Paul Gage tires.

The «Crocodile» Audi R8 LMP - Only a Few Left

The «Crocodile» Audi R8 LMP from Slot.it is now in stock and ready to ship. This stunning livery has been perfectly reproduced on this car and the Audi R8 LMP has already proven to be one of the fastest cars in the Slot.it lineup. You can't go wrong when purchasing this beauty.


The car is already sold out at the manufacturer and the distributor. Once the cars we have now are gone, they won't be coming back. Act fast if you want one.

A Brand New Alpine Renault A310 from Avant Slot

The Alpine Renault A310 from Avant Slot will be a great addition to your collection. The #4 car has participated in the Monte Carlo rally in 1976 and is looking fantastic. It has a long can motor inline configuration, with a standard Avant Slot motor pod.

Motor Adapters from CG SlotCars

We now have in stock the brand new motor adapters from CG SlotCars. They're made to adapt FC130-size short can motors to FK180-size inline or anglewinder motor mounts. A set includes one can end and one endbell end adapter and they're both 3D-printed from tough nylon. It also includes removable stabilizing tabs for Slot.it anglewinder motor pod.

Carrera DTM Tuning - Home Racing World

Home Racing World is a great place for slot car enthusiasts that are looking for a strong and friendly community to share everything about this wonderful hobby. Harry Wise is the leader of this community and he recently published a very detailed explanation on how to get better performance from Carrera DTM cars (most of the tips also apply to other Carrera car models).

Even though I don't sell Carrera cars at Slot Car Corner Canada, I know a lot of customers run them and would like to get the most performance from those cars. Most of the parts that are needed to follow Harry's suggestions are available from Slot Car Corner Canada (please note that the links in the article go to our good friends at Slot Car Corner in the US).

CB Design 1/24 Classic Steel Wheels

Based on our popular 1/32 Classic Steel Wheels, the 1/24 Classic Steel Wheels are intended primarily for scratch builders. There are two (2) variations of this wheel - one variation is designed for use with 3/32" axles while the second variation is designed for 1/8" axles. Note that both wheel variations are the same size (i.e. take the same tire).

Designed for use with Paul Gage H&R Narrow (Rib) urethane tires, that are also in stock.

SCC Sanding Blocks - New & Improved

The SCC Sanding Blocks are back in stock, NEW & IMPROVED !

What's new?

  • They're cheaper, only $4 each.
  • They're smaller and thinner for better handling, yet large enough to sand both tires at the same time.
  • They're now available in extra fine grit (800), in addition to the previously available 100, 240 and 400.



Our Universal Sanding Blocks are an essential tool for achieving maximum performance from your 1/32 slot cars. Sand your tires to ensure they are "true" - perfectly round with a flat contact patch. The sanding blocks can also be used to sand chassis or any other car parts.

You can buy them individually or in a complete set of 4. And they're made right here in Canada.
